Since imagination is an important attribute that is required to be hypnotized, it’s easier to access a child’s subconscious mind to bring about rapid change. If a child is motivated for change we often see amazing results.
If you’re wondering what issues could be improved for children with the use of hypnosis and positive self-suggestion, here are a list of issues that respond well to hypnotic techniques:
Self-confidence, self-esteem, goal setting
Fear – Fear of dogs, cats, insects, snakes, etc.), being left alone, darkness, monsters, doctors, dentists, needles, storms, test anxiety, new foods, being sick, sports injuries, failure, and more
Unwanted Habits – Nail biting, thumb sucking, hair twirling and poor posture, stuttering or stammering, nose picking, and more
Eating Habits – Food choices, too much sugar, manners, weight loss & weight control
Performance Issues – School, study skills, learning and memory, completing homework, exams, sports, competitions
Sleep – Reluctance to go to bed, too tired to get up, nightmares, etc.
